LTE Signal Boosters For Telkom, MTN And Vodacom

Staff Writer 2020-09-19

You're not alone. Slow data connection and limited cell signal are frequent problems in South Africa. There are many contributing factors to poor signal but it usually comes down to one of the following causes: Physical distance from the cell tower or external obstructions such as trees, hills, mountains, valleys or dense foliage. Another leading cause of obstruction is building material or the layout of the building (e.g. your home or office).

Use this map to see if you have LTE Coverage.

Adding an external antenna, or pairing with a signal booster is an excellent way to improve the strength of signal received. Mounted for optimum access to your nearest cell tower, an antenna can reach further than your average cell router and find the signal you seek, bypassing any building material or other obstructions that are blocking your incoming signal. If you are looking for an easy to install, unobtrusive antenna, have a look at the XPOL-1.

All the cell phone signal boosters from Bolton Technical are ICASA approved, and amplify 2G, 3G and 4G LTE cell phone signal for all phones, across all popular networks (including Vodacom, MTN, Cell C and Telkom

Our TOP Pick to Improve Signal For Any Mi-fi/ LTE Router

LTE-XPOL-1 Antenna

FROM R1,100

The XPOL-1 is a cross-polarised, omni-directional antenna. It offers clients a future proof, wide band option that performs exceptionally well across 2G, 3G, and 4G frequencies. The antenna offers 2X2 MIMO capability and can be used in a dual 2×2 modem.

The XPOL-1 antenna has a variety of mounting options to ease the installation process. The antenna can be wall or pole mounted to be used as an outdoor antenna or the antenna can be window mounted with the help of suction cups.

The new XPOL-1 antenna is expected to be wildly popular amongst those seeking a wideband solution to improve signal for a variety of applications, and is the perfect cost-effective, futureproof solution to bring signal directly to a variety of LTE or Mifi devices.

To improve signal in a building for both voice and data or where a very weak signal exists we would recommend the use of a signal booster in conjunction with an antenna to amplify the weak existing signal and broadcast strong signal in the home or office. The advantages of installing a signal booster are plentiful: They strengthen existing weak signal, there is no need to be connected directly to the device or internet connection required.

We recommend products from the WilsonPro and weBoost line, manufactured by Wilson Electronics in the US and locally distributed by Bolton Technical.
